WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS POTHEAD CASHES IN
America's favorite bong banger, Michael Phelps, has rebounded from his fall from grace with the general public and is the new spokesman for H2O Audio. Sounds like a match made in heaven as bongs and water go together as well as bongs and water.
Phelps rose to cultural prominence by winning some medals in something called the olympics. He rose to counter-cultural prominence when the above photograph was splashed across the front pages of newspapers around the world in February.
"We are a young company of athletes for athletes, and our relationship with Michael will undoubtedly benefit our technology, product performance and design," said Kristian Rauhala, founder and ceo, H2O Audio. "Michael embodies our vision and commitment to excellence, and reinforces our dedication to improving the training experience with music anywhere, anytime."
Phelps, known for his pre-race trance listening to his iPod, joins other well known "water" enthusiasts representing the H2O brand including big-wave surfer Laird Hamilton. "Music has always been a huge part of my life and my training," commented Phelps. "H20's line of waterproof headphones and accessories will help swimmers of all ages and skill levels, as well as other athletes, to incorporate music as part of their time in and around the water."
A more cynical person would substitute "music" for "weed."
